dc.descriptionIn this letter from James Carroll to the Adjutant General, Carroll acknowledges the receipt of a letter from the office of the Adjutant General that forbids the commission from experimenting on any military or civilian personnel with the yellow fever serum. Additionally, Carroll acknowledges reading a report dated October 21, 1901 that details the experiments that were conducted on two military personnel. Carroll further details how he believed he had permission from the military commander (Captain Harmon) at the base to conduct the experiments. He goes on to explain how he was operating in what he believed was good faith and with permission from the ranking military officer at the time. Furthermore, Carroll explains that since yellow fever is not a communicable disease that the experiments that were conducted did not place the entire regiment at risk. In conclusion, Carroll reports that his work is completed and that out of the thirteen persons who he experimented on only two of them were military personnel.en_US
